This World

The fireworks in the background are still popping over a few streets.
Perhaps it could be gunshots.
It seems someone gets shot almost everyday.
Maybe its because of bad choices.
Or maybe its just Gods way,
Of saying its your time.
To finally rest from all the stress,
In this life you've recently faced.
Possibly it was something innocent,
Being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
This world is cruel,
in case you didn't know.
So just be careful if you go out,
Don't ever leave alone.
Anything at any second,
Can happen without know.
Tell your people that you love them.
Don't be afraid to lower your pride.
Not everyone is genuine.
Anything can turn you cold.
You can still have fun though,
just be aware.
Of yourself and your surroundings.
Robbing is popular here.
They don't care if you have kids..
How you feel.
If you work
or how loud you choose to scream.
They have a mission.
They want what yours.
Wether its physical or emotionally.
You couldn't be prepared for what could happen.
You will get tormented for being white.
Or black.
Which is actually really sad.
Its ashamed.
Because its something that is taught.
Kids don't care about race.
They only care about who is and isn't there.
Which they carry with age.
So what if we spread love.
Encouragement, positivity,
Just stop all the hate.
Though, not everyone is bad.
Kind words can go far.
Even though depression never parts.
Pray if you believe in God.
Pray if you don't.
It may take more than the time expected.
But everything happens for a reason.
And though we may never know or understand.
Things don't ever go as planned.
We all are put here for a reason.
No matter the weather.
Regardless of the season.
Don't let anyone bring you down.
Keep your circle small.
Stand up for yourself.
And always watch your back.

    I love this poem.
    I felt like I was being given the wisdom of my father before I headed off on my own for the first time.
    A very easy and delightful read.
